It could be just that the Yosemite is not recognizing your Airport card -WiFi function due to the bad setup. Just to confirm, the Ethernet and Bluetooth are working. To check, open the About this Mac and look in Networks for information, showing your hardware and drivers and more. If it shows it there do following steps. Disconnect Ethernet and do ...

Sounds like it might be a bad Airport card, if you have the tools, open it up and then disconnect and reconnect the antennas connecting to the card. If that doesn't work, remove the card, clean the contacts on the card and then reinstall it. If that doesn't work, you'll need to buy a new card, specific for your model of MacBook Air.

The problem is the bridge mode: From Apple Support: The DHCP and NAT option in AirPort Utility application > Network tab > Router Mode (default mode) must be selected on your primary base station (…) If you had more than one Airport, all secondary stations must have Bridge mode on, given there is one Airport or Time Capsule working as the primary ...

Start off by eliminating variables. Test using speedtest.net in your Mac, and explicitly select the server. Do the same on your phone. Or test using speedof.me on the phone. Otherwise you're comparing apples to oranges - they use different servers.

In my case it turned out to be the router. It was an old 802.11g router that I replaced with a 5GHz 802.11n router. It works great now, no problems whatsoever.

I'm afraid you can't. Extending networks only works between Apple products and the Time Capsule does not have a "client mode", as the Airport Express. You could buy a router that can connect wirelessly to your ISP Modem - Router, and connect the TC by an ethernet cable to it, in order to keep using it as a Time Machine destination. You would have to put the ...

The page has now been corrected, which should mean that the popup no longer occurs.

It is to do with the difference between the power cable shipped with it and possibly some regional legal restrictions. The model number is MC414. MC414Z/A is the European variant. MC414LL/A is the US variant. MC414C/A is the Canadian variant. MC414J/A is the Japanese variant. MC414B/A is the UK variant. etc...

The fix provided by Buscar is a good one, but it's only temporary. Channel crowding is a problem that will only become worse, not better. As more and more people buy wireless routers, range extenders, and additional access points to solve their connection issues, you are going going to run out of channels. Manually setting your channel today will fix ...

Your MCS is zero (0) which would explain why your WiFi is slow. That can happen if there is channel crowding (not only from your devices but neighbors included). You could just change the channel for now 1 to 5 and try. Or you could do a quick analysis of the channels do following: In Spotlight type "Wireless Diagnostics" Click on Wireless diagnostics ...

After lots of fumbling I discovered that the wifi speed is inversely proportional to the CPU temperatures. I installed TG Pro and found that, without altering the internal fan speed or using external cooling, the CPU's would approach 200 F after about 30 min of on time. With TG Pro I was able to increase the internal fan speed (from the built in speed of ...

It does sound like you are trying to connect to an enterprise network and you have 802.11x authentication. If this is NOT the case and you need to enter a username/password in a web page, then you may need to create an AppleScript/Automator function to handle that. In any event, to connect to an 802.11x network with authentication, you need a network ...

I have been trying the free account for NoIP (noip.com). My Airport Extreme has accepted it without complaint, but I found that my Foscam IPTV cameras have a built-in DDNS client so I don't know whether updates are happening from them or the Airport. I am running 7.7.3 firmware on the Airport.

I have the same model that you, and your are partially wrong. I got speeds between 215 and 235mb/s on PPPoE mode, but I got 300mb/s (my cable connection speed limit) on NAT and DHCP modes. Haven't tested it on VPN Passthrough mode. All test with CAT.6 cable.

After hours of pulling my hair out I'm going to answer my own. TL; DR: Airport Extreme (at least the 2013 edition which I own) is crap for gigabit networks. It's advertised gigabit ports cannot go over, after much testing, 205mb/s because of the WAN to LAN routing which is horrible. This is a decent wireless router but overpriced for what it offers in ...

From your description you have a modem provided by your ISP and a separate access point or wireless router given by them that at the moment gives you Wi-Fi access to the internet. You have to replace this access point or router with your Airport Extreme. Open (or download, if you're on a Windows box) the Airport Utility app that will allow you to configure ...
